Buttercream Cupcake Dragon by GoddessYsaria Buttercream Cupcake Dragon by GoddessYsaria
Two cupcakes, some buttercream icing, and airbrush food coloring.

Yeah..that's a lot of icing, but hey, it's art. It's just a coincidence that it's delicious. ^ ^

He may have a tough sugary outer armor, but he's a chocolaty softie on the inside.

I would be so conflicted on whether to eat it or display it in a gallery!

xD thanks! Those dragons usually only took about...20 minutes, depending. Most of it is making all the scales and then deciding which colors to airbrush it.

I work at Kroger's bakery, and I've always wanted to do something really detailed but they get on to me about time. :l

This is neat though.

Yeah, I only really do these on slow nights when everything else is pretty much done. Luckily, I only need white and black icing to make it and just airbrush it..rather than have a billion bags and icing tips out at once and having to...*shudder*..mix colors...

Usually makes things faster ^^ the only thing that takes a couple minutes are the scales, really.

I work in a walmart bakery so..yep! I just got bored on one of our really slow nights and didn't wanna do our pre-designed cupcake critters. xD

I wanted to put something that looked like gold coins under him, but I didn't have time.

Nah..I live on the east coast. Making him is pretty easy though, just a bit tedious. I used a leaf tip for his scales and layered them from back to front so they would lay right. I did everything in white buttercream first, then airbrushed him teal then went over again with the airbrush in purple and a touch of blue.

I only used three tips: leaf tip, very large round, and a medium writer, plus an open coupler for the structure of the neck, tail, arms, and legs. :3

go ahead xD if your walmart does cupcake critters they could pull it off.

Let them give it a shot, I'm sure they've got somebody like me designated the "cupcake slave" that wouldn't mind trying something new.
